StyleSpeak brings expert insights from Richa Agarwal and Meerra Mevawala on the hottest make-up trends for the Christmas season to give your client the best show-stopping looks.

Sultry Smokey Look

Smokey Eyes is a classic eye make-up style that will never go out of fashion. The dramatic smokey eyes with a pop of gold and a bit of glitter can transform your client’s make-up look from drab to fab. This cliched yet eternal eye make-up is a sure-shot hit for the Christmas season.

Gorgeous Green Eyes

A party make-up is incomplete without the use of bright colours. A pop of green can add life to the most colourless looks. This vibrant hue can be applied on both the upper and lower eyelids to give a smokey vibe and can be completed with glittery gold eyeliner.

Rocking Red Lips

It’s Christmas and the timeless red lips is an essential party make-up accessory. A bold and bright red tone puts the lips in focus while making a million heads turn. Make-up artists can complement the red lips with soft, subtle and nude make-up to create a lasting impact. To ensure the lipstick stays long, use a lip-liner and then fill in the lips with the use of a brush.

Richa Agarwal, Founder of Cleopatra Salon and Spa and HBS Make-up Jury Member says, “Covid-19 has taken much from us, we won’t let it take our festivals too. Although, innovation and use of new techniques are requisites, try using contactless techniques like airbrushing.”

She further reveals that colourful eyeliners with geometric, graphic designs, heavy or flash of spider mascara looks, peachy or rosy blush on, lots of shimmers, high-contouring and red lipstick are the trending make-up looks for Christmas.

“Pastels with red, silver and golden are the colours of Christmas. Experiment with combinations of nude eyes, bold lips or colourful eyeliners.”

Silver Glitter Eyeshadow

If your client wants to make a rocking statement with their eyes, then the glamorous and glitzy silver glitter eyeshadow is all you need. This eye-catching look is perfect to add the right amount of sparkle and shine to your client’s boring make-up routine by making her party-ready.

Gold Eyeliner

Ring in this Christmas season with the sensational gold eyeliner. Help your clients achieve an instant party-ready and sparkly eye make-up look with the bright gold hue. This works perfectly with neutral and nude make-up, smokey eyes and bold red lips. Well, you can never go wrong when it comes to the quintessential gold eye make-up.

Glowing Cheeks

If your client wants to have a subtle, neutral look for this Christmas season, then a highlighter is a must-have in your vanity kit. Fresh, dewy, radiant skin and a flawless make-up look can be achieved with an incredible highlighter. Dabbing a bit of the product on your client’s cheeks can give her that instant dazzling glow.

Meerra Mevawala, Principal and Founder of Meerra’s International School of Makeup and More says, “Soft dewy make-up with soft smokey eyes, nude lipsticks, heavy mascara and bold brows is one of the trending make-up looks for Christmas.”

“Eyebrow is the one thing you can get into shape without exercising.”

Just Wing It

Up the glamour game with a flick of an edgy, sharp and clean eyeliner. Cat, winged or graphic lines, create varied styles with the use of a pen eyeliner and make your client’s eyes do all the talking. Complete the make-up look by volumizing the lashes and shaping the brows to the perfect arc.

Peachy Blush On

The right shade of blush can make or break the make-up look. Peachy and rose are certainly the shades of Christmas to make your client’s cheeks pop and give a radiant finish. Contour the cheeks to perfection before adding the blush as it helps in enhancing and defining the facial features.

These charismatic and classic Christmas make-up looks are all you need to charm your clients and make their holiday season a glamorous one!
